You can symbolically "adopt" a sea turtle nest in T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park through our NEW Nest Adoption Program! 

By adopting a nest, you directly support Friends of St. Joseph State Parks with preserving and protecting the park's natural and cultural resources.

How it Works 

Once you adopt a nest, we will assign you to one of our current sea turtle nests.  You will receive notification via email along with a printable adoption certificate and picture of the nest when you are assigned a nest.  After the nest hatches and the data has been collected, you will receive an email with specific information about your nest. 

What you Get

Nest Adoption

For your $50 tax deductible donation, you or designated recipient will receive the following:

-Printable adoption certificate

-Photo of the nest 

-Nest evaluation results

Important Note

Nests are assigned in the order that adoptions are received.  Nesting typically begins around mid-May, so it might be June or July before your nest is assigned.  

Please keep in mind that you may never see your adopted nest in person.  High tide and storm events sometimes wash nests away, and sometimes predators can destroy nests despite our best efforts.  Thank you for understanding that these events are out of our control.
